digital identity event iproov

The Future Identity festival will take to the stage at The Brewery, London, on November 15th & 16th. In preparation for the event we caught up with Aarti Samani, SVP Product & Marketing at festival sponsor, iProov.

We chatted about why in today’s world every adult who wants to transact online will need to engage in creating and using a secure digital identity. Aarti explained the role biometric technology has to play in verification and genuine presence assurance.

Biometrics, like any security method, is subject to attacks from bad actors and Aarti shared insights into both opportunistic attacks and the rise of increasingly threatening digital attacks. She explained why the vulnerability gap can be closed more quickly, when solutions are cloud hosted.

Aarti also highlighted the importance for identity solutions to be usable, for the entire population, regardless of age, gender, cognitive ability, background or crucially the device being used.
